: Grand Prix

The 1987 Formula One World Championship Japanese Grand Prix
In the land of the rising sun, Britain will be hoping that one of its favourite sons will rise to the occasion.
Last time a Grand Prix was held in Japan, Britain's James Hunt won as defending champion, having clinched the title the previous year at the Mount Fuji circuit.
Nigel Mansell can't do that here at Suzuka, but a win means that he could still snatch the title from Williams teammate Nelson Piquet

: The Natural World

Grizzly!
Narrated by Barry Paine Villain, trophy, monster!
When white settlers forged across North America, no creature in the new land caught their imagination so much as the great grizzly bear. It could outrun a man and fell him with a single blow of its paw. It excited terror, awe, even hatred, and it became a symbol of all that was wild in wilderness.
Today the tangled thread of man's relationship with the grizzly has taken another twist, for the bear is now a threatened species and man its reluctant steward.

There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time - not those of today.
